When you are imagining and visualizing an idea that you expect to be fruitful, it is important to be obsessed with the idea. Think about the idea as much as possible—even to the extent of neglecting friends and family…But if in the course of the work you find that you have run out of money, someone else has a better idea, or your idea has a serious flaw, give up the obsession immediately and move on.
